This is just a quick update to say that, as expected, the $25 credits from the recent Amazon/AmEx deal have already been posted to our accounts. The terms of the offer said that the credits would show up within 90 days, but AmEx has always been very good posting their bonuses quickly, so I was expecting a quick turnaround.
As a reminder, I registered all four of our AmEx cards (two each on two accounts) and used them to buy 4 x $75 Amazon e-gift cards. So that’s a grand total of $300 in Amazon gift cards for $200 after the 4 x $25 discount. Not too shabby, huh?
I made the purchases on Monday, the transactions posted to our AmEx accounts on Tuesday, and the bonuses were already showing up on Wednesday. To see a list of the bonuses that you’ve received, click on the “Offers For You” tab on your AmEx account summary page and then click the “My Savings” button.
Here’s what the bonus looks like once you cash in on it.
Sadly, this deal is now closed to new participants. But those who opted in before it filled up still have until Dec 31st to make their purchases. As I noted in the original post, the easiest way to make this happen is to just buy electronic gift cards.
